Kobe on guarding Westbrook
 

 

So instead of resting his injured shin a few more games, he raised his hand before the game and asked to guard Westbrook. As defensive a.ssignments go, that's akin volunteering to run a marathon in death Valley in July while being swarmed by angry bees. But this was not the time for prudence or caution. The Lakers needed to win a game like this to prove to themselves and everyone else that they still could.

"He cooked us the last time he was here," Bryant said of defending Westbrook, whom he harassed into a 3-for-22 shooting night just three weeks after Westbrook torched the Lakers for 36 points. "So I figure, if he's going to cook us, I want him to cook me."


Would that be sustainable over a seven-game series?

"I gotta do what I gotta do," Bryant said. "I did it a few years ago [in the Lakers' 2010 playoff series win over OKC] on one knee. Sometimes you've got to will it."

Laker fans are desperate and delusional. How many wide open jump shots Durant miss?

I give the lakers credit for f!ghting back and cutting off the lanes to the basket.

I would a.ssume Ebanks would get the starting role, and Barnes would def be off the bench.

Westbrook got locked up by Kobe. I watched the game and everyone else did, it had nothing to do with a bad shooting night for Westbrook, Kobe locked him. Ebanks played great defense on Durant, but all it is, is about how Durant missed his shots he would usually make No Ebanks played good tight (pause) defense on KD.

So if by bragging we shouldn't brag about a SF guarding a point guard in a playoff series, now should we?

And here's the actual playoff series thread...they was mad "thanks for the play by play espn" guy


They don't like when you point out facts you can't contest as their happening and can't go "look he shot 30% and kobe was guarding him...lockdown defense"

Gullible stans

Lakers dont have the endurance to do that in a 7 game series with the Thunder and that's all that matters.

How about the previous game, where Westbrook went 4/13, and had 8 turnovers?

Or did you conveniently forget to track that one because it's not in your best interests as a Lebron fan?

Let's not act as if you're taking 8 possessions and trying to translate it to more than what it is.

And despite all of that, Westbrook had had 13 points in the last 3 quarters

You mean the same way how they beat the Thunder 2yrs ago in the playoffs when Artest (at the time) played good defense on Durant and dropped his playoff average to 25PPG compared to the 35PPG he was scoring in the regular season?

If Westbrook/Durant/Harden aren't scoring....that's game for the Thunder, if not bailed out.

Westbrook just had a bad offensive night and that's what hurt us. He had several good looks but he just couldnt connect. No biggie. Every good player has those off days. We still lead the series.


Not to mention the fact that Artest put a bounty on Harden. Who is a big help from off the bench.
